EMP-Shielded Power Grids Under Development

Instant Access Networks (IAN) has developed a patent-pending shielding technology that encloses a room or similar structure and protects it from EMP events. IAN’s shielding, which includes electrically isolated layers of steel and aluminium, is up to 70 percent lighter than materials traditionally used by the military and other sources for EMP protection. This enables EMP-safe rooms to be portable. IAN’s shielded rooms can protect mission-critical fibre optic network nodes and data or communication centres. They can also house generators, which, when several are connected, create a micro power grid, or microgrid, that can provide power to a campus or entire communities
